Comment
A set of ten prints representing single figures of the Sibyls, with a title page. According to Michael Bury 2001, no. 36, there were three issues of the set, the first of 1606, published probably by Raffaello Schiaminossi himself, the second of 1609 with Giovanni Orlandi's publisher's address, the third in the same year with the address of Nicolas Van Aelst.
